Updated: Guns N’ Roses NOT Casting New Music Video
If the website of an English casting agency is to be believed, Guns N' Roses are seeking two "kidnapping bad ass chicks" for a new music video. You can see the listing over at Casting Call Pro, announcing roles are available for two females between the ages of 18 and 26. The video shoot is scheduled to take place Feb. 6.
2/1 Update: Apparently the Casting Call site is seeking the "bad ass chicks" for a rap video, and "Guns N Roses" is the song title, not the group name.
Now, it's time for the usual GNR news disclaimers. Guns N' Roses has said nothing about this casting call, and there's been no confirmation that any new songs are heading our way from the group, who will welcome "classic"-era guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan back into the band for four shows in April.
It's entirely possible that this rumored video is simply a promotional tool for some future project (more tour dates? A best-of album?), or maybe even that they are making a new video for an already existing Guns N' Roses song. Another unanswered question: Why is the California-based band shooting a music video overseas? Maybe they aren't even in the video, or maybe their parts will be filmed elsewhere separately.
The only thing we know for sure is that these three Guns N' Roses stars, with suspected but unconfirmed bandmates including Richard Fortus and Dizzy Reed, will perform two sold-out shows on April 8 and 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and then on April 16 and 23 at the Coachella music festival in Indio, Calif.
All that said, c'mon... the most fun thing to think is that Axl Rose, Slash and Duff are making new music together again, right?
